Connected farm program in Kingston

KINGSTON — A program on New England connected farms will be presented Saturday at Kingston Community Library.

The free program, which begins at 2 p.m., will show how 19th and early 20th century northern New England farmers converted their detached homes and barns into connected farmsteads.

It’s led by architectural historian Thomas Hubka, author of “Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn: The Connected Farm Buildings of New England.”

There will be 19th century-style refreshments, and produce provided by White Cedar Farm in Kingston.

The program is presented by the Kingston Historical Museum and the town’s Heritage and Historic District commissions through a grant provided by the New Hampshire Humanities Council. Support is also received from Friends of the Kingston Community Library.

For more information, contact Lindsay McDougall at 770-8036 or ljfmcdougall88@gmail.com.
